In this course, participants will review the relationships between geometric freeway design, permanent signing, and roadway markings. The training will focus on freeway interchanges and expressways where complex lane transitions and configurations present signing and marking layout challenges.

This training describes the concept of degree of control and addresses both the limitations and flexibility of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). A systematic approach will be presented for the selection of the most appropriate sign group, sign type, and sign layouts for all types of exit configurations.

This course will reference sections 2D, 2E, and 3 of the MUTCD, Chapter 10 of A Policy on Geometric Designof Highways and Streets, and Chapters18-21 of the NCHRP 600: Human Factors Guidelines for Road Systems.

Before beginning this course, participants are strongly encouraged to review four 15-minute pre-recorded PowerPoint lessons covering definitions and foundations concepts. Participants will build upon these lessons during the workshop.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Design and review interchange configurations and lane transitions for effective signing and marking design
  • Design signing components and marking layouts which effectively integrates with geometric design and human factors
  • Recognize and apply positive guidance concepts to geometrics, signing and markings designs for improved performance


Engineers, engineering practitioners, technologists, and engineering assistants involved in freeway and expressway design, construction, and operations including Sections such as Roadway Design, Traffic Engineering, District personnel with responsible charge of plan review of TCDs (striping, signing, other markings), plan preparation, development/revision of standards for the same and Consultant Management staff, as well as consultants performing work on such projects and/or related duties.
